- Section 1 – Salary Discussion: Look up the job you are interested in having in the future. Make sure you notice the salaries and whether they differ by state.
- Section 2- Graduate School or Marketability- If this position requires a graduate degree, look up the cost of different graduate programs to determine what is the highest and lowest cost of this graduate degree. Discuss the cost and the time it will take to complete a graduate degree if this career/job requires it. Include whether you are willing to take the economic risk of going to graduate school? If it does not require a graduate degree, discussed in this section how they can improve their marketability while they’re earning their bachelor’s degree? For example, internships, volunteering, etc. How can they obtain these opportunities while at FIU?
- Section 3- Resume: You will then prepare or update a resume for job applications. Please use the following resume guide from FIU’s Career & Talent Development to help you develop or update your resume:
• https://spark.adobe.com/page/NshJo1ncwAH70/: Choose the appropriate resume to reflect your career goals.
• https://linkedinlearning.fiu.edu: Search for ‘resume’ in the search bar.
• Your resume should not exceed one page. If the job you’re looking for requires a graduate degree, your resume should then reflect that (you will pretend that you have a graduate degree—the goal here is to give you the opportunity to become informed about the degree you would need for this position).
- Research your Parallel Plan: Now, imagine if your ideal career ceases to exist. Perhaps the robots can do it now, or you are unable to get the degree needed to be eligible for that job, or maybe it becomes obsolete for some other reason. You will need to create a parallel or alternate plan. To do so, you will first identify your career-related interests, abilities, values, and goals.
Your parallel plan should be a different career than the original career goal you had in mind. If your plan is to go into a healthcare profession, your parallel plan should be a career goal outside of the healthcare field. For example, if your career goal is to become a doctor then your parallel plan can be to become a school counselor for the K-12 school system. This way you are exploring and learning about diverse career options that can be a great fit for you.
Think about the following questions (this is brain storming part- you do not need to include this in the paper):
• Why am I interested in pursuing (insert your top choice major here)?
• What do I like most about my current major of interest?
• What classes have I performed well in and what classes have I disliked or struggled with the most?
• What specific careers interest me and why?
• What types of work environments do I prefer?
• What companies would I love to work for and what is my dream job?
• Explore different Majors within your Academic Unit, College, School, etc.
• Look up job opportunities that can be done with the same degree you are earning now. Take note of the fact that the alternate job you’re interested in requires a different degree and consider if you’d be willing to go back to school for another degree.
• Pay attention to the job salaries for these alternate jobs/careers.
- Section 4: Parallel Plan – Create your parallel plan. When developing a parallel plan, answer the following questions in your plan: (REQUIRED)
• Are there any common courses between my current major of interest and my alternative major choice?
• What courses differ between these majors?
• Are there any application requirements or admission standards that I should know about?
- Once you have completed all of the above steps, you will prepare document you will be submitting. The document must have the following four sections:
• Current job Salary Discussion
• Graduate School or Marketability
• A one-page resume ready for applying to the job you are interested in pursuing currently.
• Discuss your parallel plan with the alternate job(s) you might pursue instead. Specifically, identify and mention what that job/career would be and discuss why you chose it. You must answer the questions included in step 5 above, and feel free to include other questions you considered in the steps above while developing your parallel plan. Make sure you include what the salaries are and if they differ by city, state or region. Discuss whether you would or would not be willing to go back to school to get the degree or courses required for the alternate job (or if you can complete these requirements currently while earning your current degree). Finally, discuss how job application and resume writing might be different (if at all) with this alternate job versus the current job you are planning on pursuing.
the spread of diseases(vaccines.gov).Germs and especially vaccine preventable disease spread quickly, however when enough people get vaccinated the spread of diseases is limited.This means that the people unable to get vaccines will have partial protection(vacciens.gov). If someone happens to get the disease the chance of it spreading into a epidemic is decreased because it is harder for the disease to spread in a herd protected group. In order for herd immunity to work effectively, enough people need get vaccinated. In 2008, an outbreak of measles caused 48 infants to be quarantined because they were unable to get vaccinated. Theses infants were unable to rely on herd immunity because there was not enough vaccination in the community(NCBI). Vaccinations are important for herd immunity, in order to protect people who are not able to get vaccinated themselves. It is often argued that vaccines cause autism. Certainly if this was true it would be a valid concern. However, this argument has been debunked on multiple different accounts. The argument was started by a study published to the lancet in 1998 by , Andrew Wakefield, along with 12 co- authors. The study claimed “they found evidence, in many of the 12 cases they studied, of measles virus in the digestive systems of children who had exhibited autism symptoms after MMR vaccination.”(history of vaccines). Wakefield then went on to recommend replacing the combination MMR vaccine with single-antigen vaccinations given separately over time(history of vaccines). Now there was many problems with this study, the first being only 12 cases were studied. Anyone in the medical or science community knows that when accusations like this are released, it is supported by hundreds to thousands of case examples. The next problem with this case was Wakefield filed for a patent for a single antigen vaccine in 1997, like the one he recommended in place of the combination MMR vaccine (public health). More investigations were done on the study when it was found that Wakefield was paid money by attorney seeking to file lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers, he hid this information from the lancet(public health). While the skeletons of Wakefields motives were being discovered scientists all around were studding possible links between autism and vaccines. The paper was found to be fraudulent on many accounts. Firstly Wakefield was proven to be falsifying medical records and data regarding the data. Only two children showed autism like symptoms days after the vaccination while Wakefield recorded eight. Additionally at least two children in the case study had developmental delays noted in their records before the vaccines took place despite Wakefield claiming they were “normal” prior to the vaccination(history of vaccines). Additionally, numerous research has proven there to be no link was found between vaccinations, and autism. Furthermore ten out of the thirteen authors retracted their statements regarding the link. The editor of the lancet claimed that Wakefields studies were “fatally flawed” and the Lancet retracted the paper (independant). Finally, Britain’s medical council banned Wakefield from practicing medicine. On the accounts that the study was proven falsified, fraudulent, and ill-intentioned, it has been proven that vaccines do not cause autism. Vaccines have profoundly altered the everyday lives and health of the human race. The safety of vaccines is not questionable due to the constant regulation and research. The effectiveness of vaccines have been proven time and time again, and have even successfully eradicated a deathly and disastrous disease. Vaccines are not only still necessary but crucial for survival, without vaccines epidemics can occur quickly in a unvaccinated community, which unfortunately japan has experienced firsthand . Catching a vaccine preventable disease can be disastrous, if someone who catches the diseases is lucky enough to survive, they plausibly will be drowning in medical bills. Frankly choosing to not get a vaccine does not just affect oneself. People who are unable to get vaccines due to age, or medical reasons depend on everyone around them to get vaccinated in order to be partially protected. The ramifications of not getting vaccinated are sever, and ultimately lead to outbreaks, epidemics, and death. Although critics have argued vaccines cause Autism, the claims have been proven false. If valid research demonstrated, unknown information regarding vaccines, they would be taken into account and recommendations would be appropriately updated.>GET ANSWER
